BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) - Research spending at Montana State University slowed slightly in the past year to $106.9 million.

MSU on Friday released its annual report on research, which showed total spending for the fiscal year ending June 30 was down $2.7 million from the $109.6 million total the year before.

The Bozeman Daily Chronicle reports (https://bit.ly/1KnXesz ) that research is important for various reasons, including prestige, the state’s economy and students.

While research funding dipped a bit, MSU says its scientists have kicked their grant searches into high gear and are putting the Bozeman campus in a strong position for next year.

MSU scientists received 540 new grants in the past year, the second highest number in campus history. The amount of money in them is up 26 percent from the previous year.
